NEWS: 50 more acts announced for Live at Leeds

It is official. Live at Leeds 2014 just got bigger. Fifty more acts have been unveiled to appear at this year’s event which, as usual, will take place over the weekend of the first May Bank Holiday, from the 2nd to the 5th to be precise.

To an impressive roll-call of artists which already includes such luminaries as those recent chart topping electro-poppers Clean Bandit, the man who by day plays guitar with The Strokes, none other than the recently Fat White Family Band amarried Albert Hammond Jr and the reformed local legends that are ¡Forward Russia!, we can now tick off the names of Bipolar Sunshine, George Ezra, Tennis, The Bug, The Fat White Family (pictured), The Neighbourhood, The Sunshine Underground and some 43 other acts who fulfil one of the festival’s fundamental selection criteria, that of promoting some of the brightest, nascent stars around.

George Ezra makes a welcome return to Live at Leeds having played a mesmeric set here last year to a packed, reverential afternoon crowd in the city’s Holy Trinity Church. Hot on the heels of his having just announced a major British tour for June, expect him to perform in a much bigger venue this time.

Talking of venues, four new locations will be hosting shows in 2014. To the tried and tested O2 Academy, both of the University Unions, The Cockpit and The Brudenell Social Club, to name but five of the already established venues, Leeds Town Hall, The Hi-Fi Club, Belgrave Music Hall and Canteen and Oporto can now also be placed on the Live at Leeds map as the intrepid gig-goer seeks how best to try and catch as many of the 150 acts as they possibly can over the 20 appointed venues.
